Conversation quotes
Conversation
In conversation the game is, to say something new with old words. And you shall observe a man of the people picking his way along, step by step, using every time an old boulder, yet never setting his foot on an old place.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Conversation would be vastly improved by the constant use of four simple words: I do not know.

- Maurois, Andre
It requires nothing less than a chivalric feeling to sustain a conversation with a lady.

- Thoreau, Henry David
There's a certain kind of conversation you have from time to time at parties in New York about a new book. The word "banal" sometimes rears its by-now banal head; you say "underedited," I say "derivative." The conversation goes around and around various literary criticisms, and by the time it moves on one thing is clear: No one read the book; we just read the reviews.

- Anna Quindlen

My God! The English language is a form of communication! Conversation isn't just crossfire where you shoot and get shot at! Where you've got to duck for your life and aim to kill! Words aren't only bombs and bullets -- no, they're little gifts, containing meanings!

- Roth, Philip
Conceit causes more conversation than wit.

- La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

- Ernest Dimnet
Do not make prayer a monologue -- make it a conversation.

It is hardly surprising that children should enthusiastically start their education at an early age with the Absolute Knowledge of computer science; while they are unable to read, for reading demands making judgments at every line.
